Personalize moderators and VIP badges
Being able to personalize moderator and VIP badges could be a great addition to give originality to the channels and with the logos related to their channel.
I like the idea of the VIP icon being customizable to make it consistent with your channel branding however i disagree with making the mod icon changeable this icon is iconic to twitch and will tell everyone what it means if you have different mod icon chatters wont know who is a mod and who isn't
I'm having a hard time thinking odfthe use case for the new VIP badge with the way it is veing implemented. Many streamers I follow would insist that all of their viewers are VIPs. Even if you are thr type of streamer who thinks that's oversentamental and cheesy, Im not sure having a single badge with the same single title is the best way to tab community members who deserve recognition.
Even the examples given in the announcement would benefit from more flexibility. What sounds better: "You always bring energy to chat, have a VIP badge" or "You always bring energy to chat, heres a badge promoting you to Vice President of Chatroom Hype Operations". Just in the small group of stteamers I watch, I can think of a few badge titles more useful than "VIP":
"I won a giveaway and all I won is this" badge.
"King/Queen of Puns"
"Whisper Buddies" (our communitys way of giving chatters someone to talk to about spoilers instead of spoiling streamer/chat)
"Double Showcase Winner"
"I Actually Won More Than A Quarter In Deal Or No Deal"
"Speedrunner/Commentator" for speedrunning marathons to designate, well, speedrunners/commentators or even previous tourney champions
I just feel like only having "VIP" badges, at best, means you're almost but not quite highlighting what someone dies foe the community, and ar worse it leaves people left out and begging for or oitright demanding a badge.
